Okay, I was going to go to Trader Joe’s and get more information about my grocery picks, but I left my notebook at work and am too lazy to recopy my very short list. It’s such a beautiful day, I feel like sitting on my couch and watching the TV. And making bread.

Well, an hour and a half later, I did go to Trader Joe’s. (I needed to go to Walgreen’s, and it was right next door.) I didn’t buy anything, just stood in front of things copying prices onto the back of a piece of mail. I have a lot of numbers. And I think it’d be pretty boring if I put them next to every item. So I’m not going to. Maybe a couple, but definitely not all.

We’ll see if this bread works. I’m trying Alton’s Basic Bread in a very shortened time period. I mixed the starter after work, let it sit on the counter for two hours, mixed it, let it rise for one hour, shaped it, let it bench proof for an hour, and bake for an hour. We’ll see how it works out. It’s 10:30 now, it should be done by midnight.
